World’s largest love letter

Dawn Young World - 1 April 2006

The “World’s largest love letter” is huge. Bigger than a football field. It measures 73 by 110 metres. This letter was first unveiled on January 16 at the M. Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium in Bangalore. It’s creation was a collaborative effort between the Friends Without Borders team, artist John Devaraj and his kids from the Born Free Art School, and many children from various schools in Bangalore. There were hundreds of children from many schools who came to sign and participate in its creation.

The text of the letter is written in Urdu, English and Hindi, and says:

Dear Children of Pakistan,
Let’s join hearts in friendship. Together we can make a better world.
-The Children of India

The letter, made of tarpaulin. Around the body of the letter are 196 smaller pieces which make-up the border, and which bear the names and addresses of Indian schools and the signatures of thousands of children. These will be delivered to Pakistani schools to establish school-to-school relationships.

The letter travelled all through India and finally will reach Lahore, where it will be presented to the children of Pakistan on April 3, as a gift from the kids of India to the kids of Pakistan, by the Friends Without Borders team.

After it is delivered in Pakistan, the 86,400 square feet of the body of the letter will be cut into 551 - 12 ft. by 12 ft. squares, which will be delivered to the recent earthquake-affected areas, for use in shelter construction.

Friends without borders expect that this gigantic Love Letter to be awarded top prize for largest card by both Guinness World Records.
